Boosting transport infrastructure and logistic operational levers as strategic enablers for competitive trade in Africa

The 11th annual Transport Evolution Africa Forum & Expo, Africa’s only port, rail, and road meeting place, returns to Durban, South Africa in 2023. 

This is THE annual gathering of local, regional, and international public and private stakeholders, who plan, build, invest-in and supply to the development and maintenance of Africa’s ports, rail and road infrastructure.

The African transport industry is undergoing a massive evolution.
